Viola Davis, Uzo Aduba, Regina King
Well, for the first hour and a half I was kinda of bummed because the same bloody winners of the past were winning again this year. I damn near threw my hands up in frustration...but I didn't because I needed my fingers to tweet...so I tweeted out my frustrations instead. However, the second half of the telecast gave me so much to smile about. My fellow Naija, Uzo Aduba, being only the second person ever to win Best Supporting Actress for Comedy and Drama for the same show (she won for Drama last night)! All dem Game of Thrones wins, especially for Peter Dinklage. Viola Davis being the first African-American woman to win for Best Actress in a Drama Series (even though I was rooting for Taraji P. Henson). And I was happy for Jon Hamm finally winning for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Dude's been nominated so many times but never won. Now with Mad Men ending their run, it was only right he was recognized. Shit, even the talented and forever overlooked Regina King got herself a statue. Yes, it was for a show that I found very much boring (American Crime) but dammit, I was still happy. In my head, I decided that award was for her magnificent work on SouthLAnd (RIP).
Andy Samberg was the host and he did a wonderful job. He was funny on stage and damn near hilarious in his skits. And his opening number was just too perfect because it spoke to those that need to/have to/want to watch all of the TV shows that are currently on air. Gotta keep up when it's time to recap with your friends over dinner.
|Sarah Paulson in Prabal Gurung|
Bummer that I'm not feelin' her face nor makeup because the gown is a stunner.
And it seems the wide brim, off-the-shoulder style was the theme of the night.
Her style is always so playful with a hint of lady-like and speaks to her age (18).
She looks lovely in this pink number. Major points for the cheekiness of her heels.
|Kerry Washington in Prada|
What a dress!
Kerry tends to go for those unique dresses. Off-kilter, at times.
This dress, while off-kilter, still is beautiful.
Didn't care much for her hairdo, though.
|Laverne Cox in Calvin Klein|
Sleek and sexy.
Please stop with the Beyonce hair.
|Aubrey Plaza in Alexandre Vauthier|
When she walked down the red carpet with the sun hitting her dress? HEAVEN.
It sparkled in all of the right places.
A great example of a dress that looks simple but it's simply not.
|Gina Rodriguez in Lorena Sarbu|
Not really a fan of Gina's style.
And while she looks very pretty in this dress (and the dress is beautiful)...
...I feel she could've done something more.
|Uzo Aduba in Jonathan Cohen|
The shade of pink is doing wonders against her skin.
Too bad for the blotch of blue in the middle that wasn't necessary.
Also, no to the hairdo.
|Viola Davis in Carmen Marco Valvo|
The more I look at this dress, the more I like it.
Yes, even with the design in the middle looking like bugs crawling down the skirt than leaves falling down the skirt.
It's the white that's working like fire.
|Kiernan Shipka in Christian Dior Couture|
At her young age, Kiernan is already deemed a fashion icon.
And while this number works in the style aspect (dress over pants are in right now)...
...can't say I'm behind this look.
Too muted for the Emmys.
|Heidi Klum in Atelier Versace|
A big ol' mess.
A big ol' Big Bird dingy yellow mess.
